Harbour Hotel Wedding
"Gosia was a fantastic photographer,and it was great to have her on the day. She is incredibly friendly, and helped put everyone at ease - especially while we were getting ready. I didn’t notice her taking any photos during the ceremony - but all the resulting images were fantastic. The style of photography was perfect as neither I or my husband like posing, and so instead we have lots of moments captured!"
The last wedding of September took me to the stunning, Grade II listed Georgian Harbour Hotel in Chichester, west Sussex. I can’t blame Michael and Heather for choosing this venue to tie the knot. The colours of the Hotel are dark and bold with dramatic, period features fitting perfectly with the couple’s black and white theme.
The morning was calm and relaxed. Heather and her bridesmaids were getting ready at the venue doing their own make up and hair. The light in the room was absolutely amazing, perfect for the bridal portraits.
The girls were simply fabulous, wearing elegant black strapless dresses. Heather looked absolutely fantastic in her fitted sequin dress and I couldn’t help myself from photographing the bride, the dress and the bride in the dress!
The wedding ceremony was held in the drawing room which was dark and lashed with soft, velvet furniture and gold fixtures. The Groom and his entourage were looking very dapper in dinner jackets!
The wedding breakfast followed with a 3 course dinner and the speeches. Afterwards, Michael and Heather were picked up in a 1959 Jaguar 240, obviously in black, to take them in style to Duncton where their celebrations would continue with more drinks and food.
On the way we stopped for some pictures at Benbow Pond, nestled on the edge of a 16 acre wood. The views in all directions are breathtaking. It has a special place in the couple’s hearts, as this is where Michael proposed!
With each wedding I learn something new, this time I discovered heel protectors, that don’t sink into the grass! How could I live without them before?
